Senator WHEELDON (Western AustraliaMinister for Repatriation and Compensation) - I seek leave to make a personal explanation.

The DEPUTY PRESIDENT-Is leave granted? There being no objection, leave is granted.

Senator WHEELDON - I seek leave to make a personal explanation as one who took part in the debate last night. I claim to have been misrepresented in what I said last night by implication in what Senator Greenwood has now said. I refer to Hansard and the final paragraph of Senator Greenwood's speech where he said, referring to the Government:

.   . its own corruption extends to the officers for whom it is responsible.

This statement followed references to the Commissioner and the First Assistant Commissioner of Taxation. I stand by what I say, and that is that last night Senator Greenwood said that they were engaged in corruption.
